We understand how valuable your content is and are committed to helping you protect it.
Udemy employs anti-piracy technology, including encoding videos using a proprietary player and attaching a Udemy watermark to all videos. This is why, when you load a video to Udemy, there is both uploading AND "processing" time, because we are encoding your videos to make them difficult to steal.
For a motivated Pirate, however, any content that appears on a computer screen is vulnerable to theft. This is unavoidable and a problem across the industry. Giants like Netflix, Youtube, Amazon, etc. all have the same issue, and as an industry, we continue to work on new technology solutions to limit Piracy.
Because pirating techniques currently outpace protection, we hired a company who is specifically dedicated to enforcing the DMCA laws on your behalf and target violating individuals, hosting sites, and DNS servers in an attempt to get any unauthorized content removed. This company, PiraShield, employs a team of professionals trained in DMCA law to go after piracy issues you bring to us. For more info on PiraShield, feel free to take a look at their site: https://pirashield.com/
Unfortunately, because of the nature of piracy, many of these sites operate outside the law and are very difficult to get shut down, despite the best efforts of our team. Not every country has copyright laws and some pirate sites ignore lawful notices they are sent. However, when we do send PiraShield after pirated Udemy courses, we are successful many times.
